The backlog for security clearances for the federal workforce and contractors has spiked once again. According to an article published last month in the Washington Post, more than 700,000 applicants wait for federal background checks.
Back in March, the process for a top security clearance took more than 450 days to conclude. That’s at least six months longer than it took in April 2016, says a federal official.
